Starting and finishing at the University of York, the Plusnet Yorkshire 10 Mile will get underway immediately after the marathon and take in a section of the attractive 26.2 mile course.

Set to be hugely-popular, the 10 mile entrants will get to soak up the unique atmosphere and enjoy the support of the large and enthusiastic crowds that have become such a feature of the marathon since its launch in 2013.

And anyone snapping up a place in the new event before 6pm on Monday August 3rd will be able to take advantage of a discounted entry price of £25. Would-be runners should go to www.theyorkshiremarathon.com to enter – but with the event expected to be extremely popular, they are urged to move fast to secure their place.

Along with the Northern Gas Networks Corporate Relay, the new 10 Mile event will bring a ‘festival feel’ to the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon.

Charlie Tatman, of the Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon, said: “The 10 mile event brings a great new dimension to the already popular Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon. There is always a fantastic atmosphere on marathon race day and the introduction of a 10 mile run gives more people the opportunity to be involved.

“The new event offers the convenience of a shorter distance combined with the large crowds and extra buzz associated with such a high-profile marathon.”

People taking part in the Plusnet Yorkshire 10 Mile can raise money for a good cause of their own choice or for one of the event’s partner charities which are the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, Macmillan Cancer Support, Martin House Children’s Hospice, The Haven breast cancer support centres, CLIC Sargent, Candlelighters, St Leonard’s Hospice and Sue Ryder.
